He is in wide demand as a lecturer on athletic preparation and physique development, and he is a popular contributor to Men's Health magazine and T-mag. Now, for the first time, he brings his extraordinary knowledge and unique muscle-building systems to a book meant for regular guys who like to work out and want to see better results than they've gotten from conventional programs.

Here's what you get from The Book of Muscle that you can't get from any other book: Set your feet shoulder-width apart, bend your knees slightly, pull in your lower abs, squeeze your glutes, and set your head in line with your spine, keeping your eyes forward. To begin the squat, bend your knees and hips simultaneously to lower your body.

Squat as deeply as you can without allowing your trunk to move forward more than 45 degrees from vertical. Make sure your heels stay flat on the floor. Squeeze your glutes together and push them forward to start the ascent, which should mirror the descent.

Keep your knees the same distance apart don't let them move in or out. Your hips and shoulders need to move at the same angle--if your hips come up faster, you increase your trunk angle and risk straining your lower back. At the top, keep a slight bend in your knees. Your quantity of muscle fibers is set at birth.

The quality of those fibers is up to you.

On the day you were conceived, the gene gods had made three decisions that you might want to quibble with as an adult, if you could:. On the downside, unless you were born to anchor the 4x relay at next summer's Olympics, you can forget about ever reaching that goal.

The athletes at the extremes--the fastest and strongest, the ones with the best-looking muscles, and the ones capable of the greatest endurance--were already at the extremes from the moment sperm swam headlong into egg. The upside is that there's a lot of wiggle room in between.

Few of us ever approach our full genetic potential.

You probably will never be a freak, but with the right kind and amount of work, you can always be a little freakier than you are now. The best way to do that is to learn to use your muscles' very own juice machine.

Everyone has some testosterone--babies, little girls playing with tea sets, grandparents shuffling through the laxative aisle at CVS--but no one has hormonal increases from one year to the next like a maturing male.

His level increases tenfold during puberty, starting sometime between ages 9 and 15, and he hits near-peak production in his late teens. From there, his testosterone level climbs slowly until about age 30, at which point he hits or passes a few other peaks. His muscle mass will top out between the ages of 18 and 25, unless he intervenes with some barbell therapy. Sexual desire peaks in his early 30s. Sports performance, even among elite athletes, peaks in the late 20s and starts to decline in the early 30s.

None of this is inevitable, of course. Unless you're that elite athlete who's trained for his sport since before the short hairs sprouted, you probably have the potential to grow bigger and stronger than you've ever been. And that could also put a little of that teenage explosiveness back into your sex life. The more you have of one, the more you get of the other.

Strength training, while it doesn't necessarily make your testosterone level go up permanently, certainly makes it get a little jiggy in the short term. We know of four ways to create a temporary surge in your most important hormone.

Do exercises that employ the most muscle mass, such as squats, deadlifts, pullups, and dips. Use heavy weights, at least 85 percent of the maximum you can lift once on any given exercise.

Do a lot of work during your gym time--multiple exercises, multiple sets, multiple repetitions. Keep rest periods fairly short to 60 seconds.

Of course, you can't do all these things in the same workout. For example, when you work a lot of muscle mass with heavy weights, you can't do a high volume of exercise, nor can you work effectively with short rest periods.

This is among the many reasons you should periodize your workouts, which is a polysyllabic way of saying change your workouts every few weeks, rather than do the same thing from now till the gene gods recall the merchandise. The mythology surrounding protein and muscle building could fill a book, even though the science is fairly straightforward.

Your muscles are made of protein except the four-fifths that's water , so you have to eat protein to make them grow. You also have to eat protein to keep them from shrinking, which is why men trying to lose fat without sacrificing muscle do best when they build their diets around high-quality, muscle-friendly protein from lean meat, fish, eggs, poultry, and low-fat dairy products.

But if you're young, lean, and trying to gain solid weight, a lot of extra protein may not help as much as you think. Protein has qualities that help weight loss and may curtail weight gain.

First, protein is metabolically expensive for your body to process. Your body burns about 20 percent of each protein calorie just digesting it. It burns about 8 percent of carbohydrate and 2 percent of fat during digestion. Second, protein creates a high level of satiety, both during meals and between them. In other words, it makes you feel fuller faster and keeps you feeling full longer between meals.

This effect does wear off as you grow accustomed to a higher-protein diet, so it may not have an impact on long-term weight gain or weight loss. Finally, if you eat more protein than your body needs, it will learn to use the protein for energy. You want your body to burn carbohydrates and fat for energy, obviously, so a body that's relying on protein for energy is like a car that's using pieces of its engine for fuel.

The best weight-gain strategy is to focus on calories first, protein second.

You should make sure you're eating at least 2 grams g of protein per kilogram kg of muscle mass. A kilogram is 2.

But that's just calories of protein, the amount you'd find in 15 ounces of chicken, two salmon fillets, or a ounce steak. A protein-powder shake can amp up your totals, as well.

If you need to eat more than 3, calories a day to gain weight, you'd better have some sweet potatoes with those steaks. Ever watched a Strongman competition on TV? They start with large men picking something even larger up off the ground.

That's a deadlift--the most basic and practical of all strength-building movements.A comparable but more shoulder-friendly exercise is the decline close-grip bench press, using a barbell or dumbbells held together. You should make sure you're eating at least 2 grams g of protein per kilogram kg of muscle mass. You'd think you could get around this by lifting weights in addition to running, but your body negates that work through a mysterious "interference effect. It takes guts and dedication to meticulously sculpt an extremely lean and cut physique.
